The manufacturer of any item usually includes a manual when it is purchased to guide regarding the use of the item. God, our Creator, gave us an instruction book to run our lives. No one is more qualified than Him to give us a comprehensive manual that covers every area of our lives and gives us the exact instructions on how to live our very best life.
Everything we would ever need is contained in our manual, the Bible. The only true living Word.
“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” Hebrews 4:12
The instructions we find in the Bible teach us the proper attitudes and beliefs, give us guidelines for detecting sin and wrong ways of thinking, and provide the discipline we need to stay on God’s path for us. The Bible is a book that never changes and every Word written in it is truth. God is not like man, His words are truth and foolproof.
“God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind.
Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?” Numbers 23:19
“I am telling you these things now while I am still with you. But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.” John 14:25-26
In confusing situations, remember that the answer is in the word of God. Life can be lived with full confidence when we have learnt to follow the instructions. The challenges of life would come our way but God knew that ahead and provided a way out for us in His Word. Learn to study and digest the Word, it will help you through the difficult and confusing seasons of life.
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Joshua 1:8
